I used the short break we took from painting the house this morning, to sort through my the knitting basket in our living room and deep down I found this
Dornröschen-Wolle sock yarn, in 'Bitterkalt' (bitingly cold), a greyblue colour with greenish streaks. Quite nice, you say? Well, for whatever reason this yarn has been sitting in my stash forever and I started to knit with it at least three times. And just as often I frogged everything because I wasn't happy with the result. Meanwhile the yarn turned into my personal 'you failed again' memorial. Now, today I was just a second away from throwing it away (if only to get it out of sight), when DH said 'this would make a nice pair of socks for me'... and somehow he got me going. I cast on right away and this is my progress so far
Not really in love with it (I think it's just because I'm not too fond of so light colours), but I think it's not too bad either. So I'll plug away at it when time allows and we'll see how it turns out. What I can promise you is that there won't be any frogging this time - if this yarn isn't turned into socks this time, it won't be turned into anything at all...
